I've been pretty consistent watching streams, but have not gotten a crate - on either account - since the 16th.

Update:  From several sources, it appears that Twitch Premium containers for watching WoWS streams has ended due to the total awarded hitting a hard cap.  Twitch Supercontainers are still a thing, though awarded in-stream only.  And "Space Drops" (the ones with Ironium) also seem to have hit a cap.

Update 2:  Twitch drops seem to have resumed as of 4/23.

Update 3:  See below,  No more drops.

I think Twitch screwed up when the started with the Super Containers.  For the first two days it seems that was all they were giving out.  After that... nothing.  They probably gave away the entire month's allotment in the first 48 hours.  I haven't seen one in days and I watch at least an hour or two every day.

Plus I have noticed that Twitch automatically sets you as "Away" after about 15 minutes, whether you are watching or not.

Yeah. you're right.  I didn't notice that.  I can't seem to change it back to Online, except to F5 and reload the page entirely.

Update: If you give focus back to the tab, it seems to update eventually.

Got one of the new ones and then nothing, even I watch nearly every day. Was 5-7 per week before.

There was a maximum number of containers given away...  that max was reached a day or so ago.  As a result, no more containers.  Not sure if it applies only to space or twitch in general.

Max per player?  Max per stream?  Or max grand total?

Support confirmed that the Space "drops" replaced the regular Twitch drops.

Someone said on a stream today that Mr Conway confirmed they only allowed for so many drops and then they had to chance change things "for the economy".  Sorry, I have no reference for that.

But it appears that when a lot of folks hit their max in the first day or so, that was it for the entire "event".  Only 2 more days to go and maybe everything will return to normal.  And, yes, I haven't had a Twitch drop in 5 days ...

Thanks Zath.  Notser kinda breezed by the question but mentioned a "very hard cap".  I guess they're done.

No problem.  It's nice of WG to set up something special like this but perhaps things will be tweaked in the future for more consistent drops.

I didn't mind the drop rate, and the crates certainly were welcome (as I'm sure the streamers welcomed the extra eyeballs). 

"Space Drops", otoh, confuse the heck out of me.  Take them and run.

There are some rumours at reddit that you will not get anymore after you got a SC.

My first (and last) was a SC.

So does this mean no more twitch crates? I haven't received one for some time now.

There are NO Twitch crates during the Space drop event.  You can/could only get the space ones (apparently 5 max) and possibly a SC.  It "appears" the event has ended, even though there are a couple of days left.  So on Wednesday, maybe everything will return to normal.  Who the hell knows.

If I remember correctly, I did get normal twitch containers during the event but like you said, it may resume to the normal drops after the event ends.

What a joke. Can't even arrange a supply of containers for the length of the event.

So I guess we had better tell some of the streamers because they are still promoting this on their streams because it looks like Twitch is using the same communications strategy as WG.

I haven't seen a twitch container of any kind since November.  WG says that's random chance. I find your complaints hilarious in a very bitter kind of way.

That's odd. Are you sure you're not doing something foolish like muting the stream? I've had a steady rain of the damn things all this year, ever since I signed on.

I got all the Space Drops I could and 1 SC. I also got 2 regular Twitch containers during that time. It all stopped after that SC though. Nothing since to the point I have stopped.

Yea I stopped getting them last week.  I am on twitch in the background pretty much all day long at work.   I figured it has to be something..   Was getting generally at least one Twitch container a day.  I won't gripe..it was good while it lasted.

Also if you switch to another streamer and then switch back right away it instantly resets to online, but then puts you as away after about 15 minutes whether you are watching or not.
